2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle that is probably out of date but given to me kindly by Toby. Cloudy dark brown colour. Lasting beige head. Oxidised aroma. Some sweet malts, not a huge amount of German flavour on this. Esters are minimal. Sweet malt and oxidisation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle as shown. Pours a murky orange with small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is a fruity malt and spice. Light fruity malt with wheat and sweet finish. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty good weizen bock, medium amber with thin head. Heavy malt masks the wheat backbone of this. Lacks the head of a real German weizen, but mouthfeel and overall body are pretty good. Medium weight winter warmer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aged 12 oz bottle served in a snifter. Slow but full pour left sediment on the side and bottom of the bottle, with a good bit of suspended sediment in the pour. The body was orange-brown, hazy with a modest and mostly short-lived, bone-colored head. Fruity aroma with a hint of biscuits. Flavorful, with plenty of dark fruits and caramel plus hints of molasses, brown sugar, and spices.
Higher ABV evident but in a mostly attractive fashion, in both the aroma and the flavor.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of wheat and fruit with spices. Amber copper color, not as dark as I expected. Weighty mouthfeel and thicker than anticipated. The aroma and flavors were not as strong as I would have liked but well balanced. It definitely had the malty and bready character of a bock with a little something extra. Mild fruit and spice notes on the finish.

Big fan, like a dunkelweizen with a punch. Alcohol warmth is noticeable. Caramel with light banana flavors. Extremely tasty.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Pours a rather hazy orange-amber color with a rather small white head. Nose had a lot of lighter fruit elements to it. Taste is slightly sweet and quite fruity, yet felt fairly heavy. Just an OK beer to me.
